You don’t need to be a web developer to make simple changes to your website.
If you’re intimidated by the technical stuff, it’s can be pretty affordable to make changes to a Shopify template and make it look super custom and robust!
Our guest today in Jonathan Kennedy from Hey Carson, he’s sharing insider tips to tweaking a Shopify theme to feel like a custom built website!
Hey Carson specializes in making small changes to Shopify websites to help business owners increase conversions and sales.
Build a Robust Shopify Theme
Themes are great because they get you started, but eventually all these sites start looking the same. You have your own unique vision for your business, and a standard theme can’t possibly fulfill that for you.
Themes can be limiting on their own. Making a few slight changes can completely change the feel of your website!
Trust the Framework
You don’t need to overwhelm yourself with too many changes or they turn into “Franken-themes” – as Jonathan calls them. Make sure your changes are based on customer feedback or data.
Shopify gives you lots of ways to integrate apps in your website. But some of these apps have an impact on the visual part of your website and they take away from the user experience. So be careful not to change too much!
Prioritize the Visual Aspect
You’re selling jewelry, so remember to highlight pictures of your jewelry. The overall visual feel of your website and brand makes a huge impact. Jonathan suggests themes from Pixel Union, Troop Themes, and Out of the Sandbox.
It’s not just about how they look, but it’s about how they’re coded. If you work with Hey Carson to do some customization, they can quickly execute changes! When you have clean code, the site loads faster which helps your SEO.
